Polydioxanone (PDO) Thread Lifting

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifting

A non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that provides a subtle lifting and tightening effect to the skin is achieved by the insertion of a special thread called polydioxanone or PDO, which has properties that stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin.  

During PDO thread lift, a needle that is pre-loaded with a PDO thread is inserted in the interstitial tissue at the subdermal level and the needle is finally pulled out with the PDO thread remained under the skin.

Different PDO thread designs are used for treating various facial problems.  For example, dual-thread, 360 degrees, 4-dimensional cog design is for the uplifting of the cheeks; dual-thread multi-directional cog design can be used for nose re-shaping; nanotech cannulas are specially designed for treating the skin around the delicate eye areas; memorable coiled design increases volume between skin tissues to target Indian folds, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.


PDO thread lift can be done on different parts of the face to deal with various facial problems:

 Improves sagging
 Tightens and uplifts facial contour
 Tightens double chin
 Lifts eyebrows and improves drooping eyelids
 Tightens eye bags
 Improves dark eye circles and fills tear troughs
 Tightens skin of the neck
 Narrows nose wings and shapes nose contour
 Improves skin elasticity and wrinkles
 Restore volume

It should be noted that the treatment must be performed by registered doctors, and relevant risks should be understood clearly before the treatment.
